The Math Circles of Chicago serves children in grades 5 through 12. Our free programs are held at eight different hubs. Sessions generally meet once every other week, and the grade levels served vary and are detailed below. Every hub is open to children attending any school.

This fall we are currently planning for MC2 sessions to meet in person, but we may revert to online on short notice as circumstances around the Covid-19 virus change, and as the requirements of the building managers at each hub change. All Haynes-5/6 and Brahmagupta-7/8 sessions will be meet for 75 minutes;  Cantor-A1/G sessions, Kovalevsky-A2/PC, and Euler sessions will be 90 minutes.

Fall registration is now open on a first come, first serve basis. New students may join a session now, or enter our winter/spring lottery which will open on November 30th.
